From beginning to end, John was a pleasure to work with. I had a wall removed and throughout the whole process, John was on top of everything. He reached out to me the same day after submitting my inquiry. John made suggestions on my different options for the wall, put together a detailed diagram of the work to be done, and gave me an estimate very quickly. The work turned out great. I’ll definite...

This is my second time hiring John to do renovations in my home. I had such a great initial experience that I had John remodel my bathroom. As was before, John is a pleasure to work with, great at communicating about timeline and his availability, and does great quality work. John removed and installed a new toilet, vanity, lighting, and retrofitted the existing pipes. He also repaired drywall as ...

John was very professional from start to finish, as were the associates he employs. He was prompt, thorough and went beyond expectations to present a beautiful turn-key job. What started out as small repairs, quickly turned into a massive project removing wall mirrors, rotted siding, flooring, insulation, floor joists, and roofing. All of this was at such a reasonable price, and he earned my compl...

The table had extensive sun damage and the other two pieces were in need of repair and refinishing. After searching numerous home-improvement sites I came across Innovative Design. The majority of the reviews were very good, so I decided to take a chanc...

Mr. Schmidt performed a wide range of remodeling and repairs to a residence to prepare it for sale. His careful analysis and creative solutions were exactly what I was looking for. His many years of engineering and construction experience were apparent in the way he went about the job. I rate him an "A" on all categories and would not hesitate to hire him again. Very professional - it doesn't get ...

I contacted John to give me an estimate for carpet and baseboard installation in my basement. After getting multiple estimates I decided to use a flooring company to install the carpet due to the fact that they gave me a better price and would be using a higher quality carpet pad. I was still interested in hiring John to install baseboards. I contacted him to let him know my plan and to schedule a...

Hi [Member Name Removed], Thank you for your review. I had the understanding as you said you felt that I was charging you too much for installing your baseboard in your basement.
